Beringer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Normandy is the region of ancient France from which the name Beringer was derived. It comes from when the family lived at Anger in Normandy. The prefix of the name, "bel", means beautiful and it is believed that it was originally describing the place that it originates from as beautiful.

Early Origins of the Beringer family

The surname Beringer was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The family branched into different regions of France including Poitou, and the lands of Hainière in Flanders (Belguim) where they adapted the spelling of their name to Boulengier and appear as a notable family in that region. Additionally, they held the estates of Pistor in Lorraine, and Montigny in Hainaut. By the 16th century, the family branched again and acquired estates at Remfort in Anjou, Thorigny in Maine and Brie. Many members of the Thorigny family contributed greatly during the conflicts of the times and are recorded as esteemed individuals. [1]

François Belanger, born in 1612, son of François and Françoise (née Horlays), travelled from Saint-Pierre de Seez to Quebec in 1636. He married Marie Guyon on 12th July 1637 and together they had thirteen children, five of which were sons that carried on the family name of Belanger. [2]

Immigration to New France was slow; therefore, early marriage was desperately encouraged amongst the immigrants. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported to Louisiana. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The distinguished family name Beringer has made significant contributions to the culture, arts, sciences and religion of France and New France.
